Al ate samgak bap instead of samgak kimbap : )

By Maangchi


One of my friends Al is very funny.
I gave him my triangle gimbap (samgak gimbap) a while ago and asked if he had ever tasted it before.
He said, no. So I told him that he should be careful when he opens it and gave him instructions: “number 1 first peel it off, then number 2.. 3..”
He said, “thanks, no problem.”

Then a few days ago, I met him and asked, “how did you like  my samgak gimbap?”

“It was very easy to open it and it was very delicious!”

Easy? I think it would be difficult. So I asked him again: “The seaweed that looks like black paper is not soggy at all and crispy, right?”

And he said, “Seaweed? I thought it was wrapper so I threw it away!” LOL!  Al ate samgak bap instead of samgak gimbap! (samgak means triangle, bap is steamed rice, and kim is seaweed paper)

BTW, The recipe is here
